This is not a drill.
One Direction’s third album, Midnight Memories, has leaked one week before it’s official release date (everything to do with those boys leaks, it’s quite hilarious). For about five minutes I pretended I was going to wait for the official release but then my download finished and I started crying.
It’s perfect. PERFECT. PERFECT. PERFECT.
My favourite songs so far are Through The Dark, Happily, and Don’t Forget Where You Belong, but I’m actually yet to find a song I don’t like.
As promised, their sound has changed, and there’s lots of folksy vibes to the album. Another description I’m hearing a lot is “Eighties” which to me means “absolutely addictive beautiful sing at the top of your lungs songs”.
The homoerotic subtext is everywhere, too. Just listen to the chorus of Happily and tell me there’s not a deeper meaning to those lyrics. Just try.
I’ll be back with a more coherent review when I’ve stopped crying/screaming/fangirling so hard I fall off my bed.
Here’s hoping an Australian leg of the Where We Are tour gets announced, like now, so we can scream these songs live like they were totally designed for.
